Detroit-based GM’s Maven Allows Users to Share Their Cars


Maven, a car-sharing platform powered by Detroit’s General Motors Co., has announced an expansion to include a peer-to-peer offering that enables owners and eligible lessees to earn money by renting their personal Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, or Cadillac car or truck model year 2015 and newer to driving members.

The service is now available in beta in Chicago, Detroit, and Ann Arbor.

“Your car is one of the most expensive things you own. Sitting idle, it is a wasted asset,” says Julia Steyn, vice president of General Motors Urban Mobility and Maven. “It’s time to put your car to work. Maven’s peer-to-peer offering is a smart way for owners to offset their vehicle investment.”

Peer Cars will be available alongside Maven Cars in the Maven app from more than 150,000 current Maven members. Eligible vehicle owners can start the process of listing their cars through Maven’s website.

“Maven is a platform designed for sharing, and we’ve proven demand exists,” says Steyn. “In this beta, we are excited to offer GM owners the opportunity to capitalize on this demand and earn income by listing their vehicles.”

Users have made more than 180,000 reservations and driven more than 300 million miles through Maven’s platform. During reservations, all vehicles are insured through GM’s $1,000,000 insurance policy, and every driving member is thoroughly vetted before they are approved to use the service. Owner support is available 24/7.

The Maven team will collect insights and learnings from the beta for additional U.S. launches in the fall.

Maven services also include city station-based car sharing, university campus sharing, and rideshare and delivery drives.
